This Toronto-based ensemble shouts their global infusion of funk, jazz and roots music from the streets. The Libation Street Band boasts an unconventional instrumentation featuring the rhythm generator double-drumming of Dave Chan and Larry Graves alongside the conversational blowing of horn-smiths Marcus Ali/Patrick Smith (saxophones) and Josh Bird on Sousaphone. Sometimes we sing too.

Recently the group has performed at The Guelph Jazz Festival (2022-23), The Toronto Jazz Festival (2023) and a variety of club and concert venue dates in Toronto (The Cameron House, DROM, Hirut Cafe). Upcoming dates will feature the group on a mini-tour of eastern Ontario (including appearances in Ottawa and at MUSIC Westport) and street performances as part of the 2024 Toronto Jazz Festival (June 23 & 29).
